BREAKING: Great Tension Everywhere As EFCC Moves To Arrest 21 Lawmakers, For Diverting Hundreds Of Millions Of Naira

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has invited 21 out of the 30 Lawmakers in the Benue State House of Assembly, for allegedly diverting part of the N375 million, meant for the procurement of vehicles, in 2016.

According to the anti-graft Agency, the Benue State Government had in 2016, awarded a contract worth N417 million (N375 million after tax), to Mia-Three Nigeria Limited, to procure 30 Prado TXL Vehicles for the Lawmakers.

However, only 8 Members received the vehicles, while the others diverted the funds.

The report added: “About 21 of the Lawmakers are under probe. However, 25 of the Lawmakers have returned all the money they received, which adds up to N245 million. Four others have failed to return the remaining sum of N31 million.”

Attempts to get a reaction from the Benue State Governor’s Media Aide, were unsuccessful. Calls to the mobile phone of his Chief Press Secretary, Terver Akase, were neither picked, nor returned.

A response to a text message sent to him on the subject matter, was still being expected, as at the time of filing in this report.
